    Hi! My name is Carlo and I like to blog! I was an assistance dog in training with the organization, Canine Companions for Independence. I lived with my puppy raiser for about a year and a half and then went to college (aka "Advanced Training"). While in college, I decided that I didn't really wanna be an assistance dog... so I came home! I'm now what is called a Change of Career (COC) dog. And, boy do I have a busy career! Come and read my blog!
